Grey Skies Fallen are a band from New York that plays a melodic and progressive mixture of death and doom metal and this is a review of their 2015 compilation that contains their 2010 and 2012 ep's "Introspective" and :Along Came Life".
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the compilation along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the music also bring s in a great amount of high pitched screams that have a black metal feeling to them and the solos and leads also bring in a great amount of melody.
At times the music can be very atmospheric and progressive sounding while the slow riffs are very heavily influenced by doom metal while certain sections of the recording also bring in a small amount of clean singing vocals which are used even more on the second ep and on some of the alter tracks clean playing and psychedelic elements can be heard at times.
Symphonic elements can be heard quite a bit on some of the tracks along with some traces of 70's progressive rock and there are also a few tracks that are very long and epic in length on both ep's and after awhile the music does speed up at times and also brings in a small amount of blast beats as well as a brief use of female vocals and the second ep also brings in a small amount of death metal growls.
Grey Skies Fallen takes a melodic form of death metal and mixes it with the heaviness and melancholic nature of doom as well a s mixing in a good amount of progressive rock elements to create a sound of their own, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover despair and bleakness themes.
In my opinion Grey Skies Fallen are a very great sounding progressive and melodic mixture of doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "When Promise Lies" "By The Wayside" and "Along Came Live". 8 out of 10.
